At the helm delivering this unique experience, Richard knows the hustle and bustle of busy city life and has found a soul replenishing home, with these amazing animals as his 'guides'.
Isdimma Husky Adventures, a family adventure closely bound to their pure bred Siberian Huskies. Forget everything you think you know or have heard - this is something different.
Meeting the dogs is almost the experience in itself, and takes place at the kennels - located in Sörbyn- Norrbotten. Experiences starting with a proper introduction; a deeper briefing on the dogs, the experience ahead and the vital gear required followed by very important playing and bonding with the dogs before heading out.
Exploring the vast gardens of the Råneå River Valley, the harnessed teams cut new trails as they glide over the white winter landscape.
Working closely with the dogs enables them to be able to travel for longer expeditions. This is what the prime goal is, and for the Siberian Husky - as a sled dog- is suited and made for long distance mushing with camp outs stretching over weeks in the arctic.
An overnight experience brings you closer to nature, to these amazing animals and more than likely yourself. There is no standard experience, but a minimum half day will give you a taste of whats possible. Longer expeditions include multi day sledding, mushing, wild cooking and overnights in remote mountain cabins.
The only way to know the dogs is to spend time with them, that you accomplish by going on expeditions!
"Take experience seriously."
- Richard Karlsson
My name is Richard, I'm a happy and dedicated musher from remote Swedish Lapland. I live with my son Hugo, daughter Nova and 24 pure breed Siberian huskies in a pristine and appealing river valley where the small village Sörbyn is located.
Beside the mushing part of life I am also a professional chef and I've been working in some of Stockholm's most renowned restaurants, co-operated with the Swedish culinary team and done some huge food events both in Sweden and abroad.
I write a lot, a creative word artist and expressing my life is part of how I grow.
I appreciate stillness and nature and seek to engage a life in balance.
Me and the team were recommended in Lonely Planet Magazine as "best for activities" and named as one of nine "Dream trips" in 2014 in the whole world.
When I work with the Dogs in the wilderness on longer runs I feel like home and with the strong contact between me and the team I experience a profound and supreme link to nature and the Dogs help me to be grounded on my journey through life.
I work closely with the team and build up a solid but also mutually connected relationship with each individual. Train them individually to build up a unique contact with each personality and then form a synchronicity for a balanced team.
The more time I spend with the team, the deeper we interact and connect.
